Authorities have not released the woman's name, but her daughter has been identified as 27-year-old Magdalena Nunyango Amunyoko,The Namibian reported. The grisly slaying was discovered Saturday, when Amunyoko's brother, a student at the University of Namibia, went to check on her. According to The Namibian, Amunyoko was born with a rare condition that restricted her body functions, left her bedridden and with slurred speech. Amunyoko's mother reportedly refused to tell her son where his sister was, so he searched the home for her. It was outside, on a barbecue grill stand, that he found the gruesome remains of his sister, New Era reported. When authorities arrived on the scene, Amunyoko's mother allegedly refused to let them inside her home. Investigators reportedly broke down the front door to gain entry. "We found a dustbin with ashes and other burned items and when it was lifted up, we found a human body, which was identified to be that of the late 27-year-old woman," Oshana Regional Police Commander Ndahangwapo Kashihakumwa told The Namibian Sun.
